Honors Concert


DSC 0162



Each year, IPSF, in partnership with the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD), presents the Donald Bren Honors Concert. Students are selected by audition and all performers demonstrate exceptional ability and commitment. Nearly 700 of Irvine's finest young musicians in grades 3-12 participate in this memorable event and perform before an audience of more than 1,500 distinguished guests and family members.


An Award Winning Program

Over the past 32 years, more than 19,000 students have participated in this dynamic performance opportunity and all proceeds go to maintaining IUSD’s award-winning music program. The students in Irvine schools are fortunate to have a community that values and invests in music education. Without your generous support, this unique experience for these aspiring and talented students would not be possible.

Thank you to everyone who attended our 33rd Annual Donald Bren Honors Concert on April 27th! We are so proud of our Irvine Unified School District student musicians, and their teachers. You are all truly amazing!

IPSF would like to thank Disney VoluntEARS, Orange County Community Foundation and HoneyBaked Ham for being our 2015 Honors Concert Contributors. And a very special thank you to our 2015 Visionary Award winners Mr. & Mrs. Bruce and Esmeralda Ogilvie.
